Whether you consider yourself a wine connoisseur or an aspiring novice—you don’t want to miss our grand tasting. Not only will you sample some of Virginia’s finest vino, but we’ll take your palate on a trip around the world! Yorktown shares more than just history with our sister cities Zweibrücken and Port-Vendres. In a nod to both countries, you can sample Rieslings and Gewürztraminers from Germany and indulge bubbly from France—the only place where true champagne is created! We’ll feature live music, great food from local restaurants, and the work of talented artisans. Also this year sample some of Virginia's finest Spirts from local distilleries. Our event is Rain or Shine. Riverwalk Landing, 400 Water Street, Yorktown, VA 23692. Admission is $35 in advance (Before August 31) and $40 after and at the door. www.villageevents.org. 757.877.2933
